It cleans everything and set to the newest firmware
Gonna try it now, fingers crossed it will get rid of that weird bug of having to hard reset to wake screen sometimes. Thanks both!
I am enjoying the music with AMP9 at the moment. I haven't tried the AMP8 yet.
Amp9 is permanently on for me, not intending to buy the Amp8, haha. IER-Z1R sounds so heavenly with the Amp9
why usb-c I find it increasing seem like getting a device to connect is like lottery
I have 3 cables and not a single one works, why can't they can't by build these to spec I don't understand. Makes me hate USB-C very frustrating experience at least standard USB 2.0 just worked
I just got the AMP9 not long ago, and yes, I like it very much. Still trying out among my IEMs for best pairing though.
after playing with cable I got it to connect as DAC just once then it disconnected again.
Why is this so painful ? Fiio F5 was flawless as connecting as DAC
I need to use DAC at work and find it very convenient at home to play tidal, but it just won't connect given the cable I have at home, I don't mind purchasing cables but it seem like a hit & miss.
@Paul - iBasso how can I get a reliable DAC connection ? thanks
Same here. I had amp8W (modified) that still can’t beat the amp9 on DX220 to my ears.
I just found out the SQ is exceptional lush and dynamic with Angie II/PW05.
That can be explained from what I know. The Tantalum capacitors on Amp8 are all AXV, and “W” modifications were originally developed to tame the sub bass to mid bass incoherences, and while I was there I just made sure to improve the timbres by a little more, so every Tantalum still remains to be AXV
Now, the EX is different, and from my experiences, the ROH capacitors and POS capacitors on the Amp9 is an upgrades to the AXV, from technical perspective to even sound performances that can be observed. I did say the Amp9 is the best of any Stock amp modules come out of the boxes, musical, yet sweet and detailed trebles, with all preferences aside. I also did mention that I didn’t feel like to perform EX modifications, and opened up the Amp9 later on to have found upgraded high quality components together with even ECHU capacitors and high quality resistors.
The Amp9 has the best component build of any module I have seen. Period, sound quality is also the best tuned to Ibasso house sound with the recent direction of going toward musicality with DX220 as a platform. So for any stock module that is untouched, the Amp9 is hard to beat. The hiss with sensitive iems may be an issues, and it definitely hiss with Amp8 hotswap
Also move from AMP8W to AMP9
Can AMP9 drive Z1R properly? It seems that Z1R is kinda power-hungry according to some Headfi-ers.
Sure it can, but at rather high volume though. I'm listening at 125-130 on high gain. It is indeed power hungry but oh so good with Amp9
I tried the z1r with amp8 and thought that my ear drums would pierce, the highs are too energetic for me. It is a powerful amp no doubt, but nowhere as musical and organic as amp9 which makes music enjoyable
Have you tried a different port and a different computer? I am trying to figure this out. We have multiple computers here and 2 Mac computers (Android File Transfer installed). They work but I admit that USB C cables are more touchy than the USB cable connections that were previously used. Some USB C cables will work great and some seem to have more of a connection problem.
I think he meant the Z1R headphone, not the IEM. I would be surprised if the AMP9 could power a large diameter Z1R headphone. Did you also mean the Z1R headphone? If so, I guess that also depends on preferred playback volume and the type of music you listen to as that has an impact as well. For instance, my average non-peak playback volume is probably around 85-90db so well driven for me might mean something different than for somebody who listens more quietly.
I had this issue too.
I had to re-installed dac driver a few times, and finally I got it work somehow.
Here are a few hints that I think could help:
1. turn DX220 to dac mode & connect to laptop
2. install driver
I think this is important.
PC will ask to reboot to complete the installation, then it will say you
need to unplug and reconnect your DX220 to have it work.
Now that I have DAC mode working, I could not figure out
how to connect dx220 as USB storage.
In non-dac mode, my pc complain that the usb device is unknown
(port reset failed)??
That is sad, since I was planning to get iFi Micro iDSD as external dac/amp
I don't know why it connects Q5 but not ifi Micro?
Is there setting for this purpose, or it is just plug and play?
